Watch Steven Universe, the First Cartoon Network Series Created by a Woman

And So It Begins


While everybody else this morning is watching a new trailer for Man of Steel (we’ll post it later, I promise), you’re going to be different. A rebel. You’re going to watch the pilot for Steven Universe, created by Rebecca Sugar, the lady behind lots and lots Adventure Time‘s songs. It’s a show about three magical girl heroes, the Crystal Gems, and their over-eager protege Steven. And it’s pretty freakin’ great.

Edit: The original video disappeared! I’ve replaced it with another, and if that goes out, try here. And if that goes out, at least here are some screen shots and a synopsis.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
